Out of 180 applications, 22 teams took the stage at the Michigan State University’s Wharton Theatre for Performing Arts, on Wednesday evening, March 29th, 2017. This year’s event offered $100,000 in total cash prizes. We are so excited and appreciative to have won the grand prize, $40,000 from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).
